Fannie Flagg is one of those authors, the first book of hers that I read was Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe and I loved it. I have read everyone of her books since then. Most of them are roll in the floor hilarious, this one, I Still Dream About You, definitely had its funny moments but was a more serious book. It takes place in the early 2000's in Birmingham, Alabama. The main character Maggie has decided to commit suicide at the beginning of the book and is putting her affairs in order. The remainder of the book is what is involved in putting her affairs in order. I won't give away the ending, but it is definitely worth reading.
